ESPN had a series of articles describing the best pick in history for each position for each round of the draft.  Rounds 7+ and UDFA were lumped into one team.

Criteria were largely subjective, one major one being that the player had to produce primarily for the team that drafted him.

Since I am wasting as much time as possible today (like most days), I tallied the numbers and came up with a few highlights:

Top teams:

1.  Steelers - 18
2.  Cowboys - 15
3. (tie) Packers, 49ers - 14
5.  Giants - 10

Likely not a coincidence that these teams have combined for 22 SB rings.

Steelers also win awards for most consistency - only team with at least 2 players from each round,  and most first rounders with 4: Bradshaw, Swann, Greene, Polamalu (beat out Reed - suck on that).

5 teams had zero teams, most of which are relatively recent expansion teams:  Carolina, Texans, Jags, Saints, Falcons (last two been around long enough to say apparently they just suck at drafting).

5 others with only one selection:  KC (Gonzalez round 1), Tampa (Rhonde barber, round 3), Seahags (Chris Warren, round 4 - weak round for RB obviously), Jets (Joe Klecko, rd 6), and the beloved draft gurus the Bungles (Ken riley, CB, round 6 in 1969).

These 10 teams, not coincidentally, have combined for 4 SB rings.
